Harrisburg, PA


lifetime resident ready to move - 12/1/2015
Having lived here many years I've noticed that some people are very nice but most won't give you the time of day.Due to many years of "lifetime" politicians, the city is without funding and so is our state. The gangs and criminals know this and are moving in.We have new housing and business development without new infrastructure. Now taxes are being raised to fund infrastructure. Don't the taxes from the new buildings support this? We have the highest gas tax in the nation, and traffic grid lock around every city.Budgets are not balanced, taxes are increased. Property taxes in some areas are $3,000 to $4,000 per year for an "average" house.That is why housing prices are cheep. Our teachers that make $70,000 a year can't educate our students due to laws that make them teach students how to pass a test that has little to do with the course being taught. Last July 4th a young man who was from out of town was leaving a fireworks display along the river front, had his jaw broken by a group of teen age jerks who had to impress their peers.This was deemed not racially motivated , but it does tell me that the area is not safe any time of day or night.Ill be moving soon to an area that has a police force that prevents crime, and to a town that realizes that if there are 100 more houses to be built there may be a need for new roads and sewer lines before the people move in.
